No Need to Mince Words

Expert on Time_Are you a feminist

We know our very own Kathi Toll carries strong views on the current state of feminism, but last week she concluded a three-week series with a particularly entertaining post.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post that simply asked, Are you a feminist?  

The word is so loaded with different interpretations that I find more and more women opt to skirt the question rather than offer a definitive answer. This frustrates me to no end, especially when celebrities and style icons behave this way. Last week, I called out Victoria Beckham on her dodgeball version of an answer that finally ended with a No, I’m not a feminist. She took a convoluted route, which entailed reiterating she’s big fan Sheryl Sandberg, but stuck with her negative response anyway.

This week we pray tribute to a woman who answers with a resounding Yes! I am a feminist with her words and actions. In fact, over the last few months she’s taken several opportunities to set people in their place when she feels an inequity in her treatment compared to men.

Curious to know who won the grand prize? Find the answer here on Expert on Time’s Talk Back Tuesday. And, tell us – are you a feminist? Why, or Why Not?
